Whoah. A primer that actually works!!!!

Most primers I've used- and I've used all sorts of Mac primers, Smashbox, Benefit, you name it, just don't do the job so well. Sure they make my skin smooth but my foundation? It just sits on top, not absorbing, eventually rubbing off or settling into undesirable areas. It was getting frustrating; I just wanted a friggin' primer to work! Enter this Jane Irdale primer; immediately upon putting it on my skin I noticed it actually absorbed, instead of sat on the surface. Yet it had the effect of making my skin smooth. I was able to put on my foundation- have it set- and it had a healthy glow, despite me just waking up and not feeling well. Now its 10 hours later and my foundation is still on- maybe not as much and not covering my blemishes, but its there. Im still amazed at how it absorbed into my skin instead of sitting on top like a layer of silicone. I highly recommend this for those sick of the typical primers that do nothing but end up failing at their job .
